I have been on a couple of dates with a guy we have been chatting before hand for a couple of months so got to know him abit had some really deep chats he has good values repects women and is always there for his family and friends!

I even waited for him to make the first move whenever i see him online but he never contacted. Our daughter just turned two yesterday and I'm just getting so fed up.

The kind of guy who holds onto the bottom of the crisp packet when he offers you one. I just encourage you to be cautious and make sure that everyone is truly on board. That's part of what makes them so intense—sometimes we can't do much about them except think about them, which makes them even more overwhelming.
